Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 review

 

A lovely but troubled 2-in-1 workstation laptop

Vibrant screen ; Tactile keyboard, trackpad ; Solid performance

Potentially defective ; Heavy on bloatware

The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 melds what you love about a workstation with a 2-in-1 laptop, but buyers should be wary of borked batteries.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14

 

The 14-inch Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 goes to work with a convertible-hybrid ultrabook that flips and folds.

Flexible multimode design. Sturdy ruggedized chassis. Full HD display with 10-finger touch.

Middling performance. No stylus offered. Battery life is a bit short.

Conclusion While I've been pretty positive about every Yoga product I've seen, and am sure that Lenovo will find plenty of business users eager to get a Yoga convertible that's geared for office use, the ThinkPad Yoga 14 is not ready to replace...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga contorts into new screen sizes, adds new CPUs

 

With a clever mechanical keyboard that solves the main complaint about the Yoga line, the ThinkPad Yoga is the best of both worlds.

A bigger screen for the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga (hands-on)

 

Jumping up to a 14-inch display, the biz-minded ThinkPad Yoga hides its keyboard in tablet mode.

Subpar battery life; Chassis a bit big for mode-switching; ; The Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 sports a gorgeous HD screen and a sturdy, flexible design, but it's held back by below-average battery life.

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 Convertible Review

 

Luxury Yoga. Lenovo brings the flexible Yoga design to the desks of business people with its ThinkPad Yoga 14. In this report, we will discover whether the Ultrabook, based on a Broadwell processor and dedicated graphics card, is well equipped for...

Elegant metal casing, Flexible and stable hinges, Decent speakers, Very good input devices, High performance, Screen lightly AR coated, Useful battery life, Suitable for basic gaming

No security features, Casing too pressure sensitive in some places, Relatively heavy, Quite expensive, TrackPoint keys too smooth-running

Basically, the verdict of the ThinkPad Yoga 14 with a Haswell processor still applies to the device with a Broadwell processor: A business convertible with a weight of almost two kilograms (~4.4 lb) and without security features will not satisfy either...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 Review

 

This 14-inch ThinkPad incorporates a 360-degree hinge allowing it to transform into a large tablet. Will a nice display, good keyboard and all-day battery life overcome hefty weight and a slow hard drive?

Excellent touch display ; Slick keyboard raising mechanism in tablet mode ; Great keyboard ; Solid build quality ; Long battery life

Heavy for an Ultrabook ; Slow hard drive bottlenecks performance ; Only one configuration offered

A bigger screen for the Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga (hands-on)

 

While Lenovo's Yoga 3 Pro has a sharp-looking new hinge and a higher screen resolution, the more staid ThinkPad Yoga line still does something no other Yoga (or Yoga-like hybrid) can do. Its keyboard is built into a rising tray that sits flush with the...

Best Buy will carry this system around the end of October, as will Lenovo's online store, starting at $1,199 in the US. In Australia, it'll be in JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman from mid-October, starting at AU$2,099. Price and date in other regions,...

Lenovo ThinkPad Yoga 14 Review and Ratings

 

Lenovo brings the ThinkPad Yoga's "lift 'n' lock" keyboard, which makes tablet mode more comfortable (except for the system's weight), to a larger-screened, lower-priced convertible sold at Best Buy. It's a winning small-business hybrid.

Excellent build quality ; Flush keyboard surface in tablet mode ; Beautiful display ; Great keyboard

Too heavy for tablet mode ; Not configurable ; No SSD

The Yoga 14 lasted for an impressive six hours and change in our strenuous battery rundown test (looping a video with brightness at 50 percent and volume at 100 percent), beaten only by the Satellite Radius in this group.

Consumer review (bestbuy.com)

Worked fine until 2 days after 1st birthday

 

So two days out of warranty, the hard drive crashed. Several problems with power management system, too. Bummer.
